Welcome

Due to the popularity of the group, membership of the Arden Photo Group has now closed. A waiting list for prospective members has been opened.

The Group is organised by Bob Moore, Hon.FRPS,MPAGB,Hon.PAGB and Sue Moore,FRPS,MPAGB with additional help from Colin Trow-Poole,FRPS,MPAGB, Leigh Preston,FRPS,MPAGB, Carole Preston,CPAGB, Graham Walton,DAPAG and Paul Hassell,MPAGB.
The aim is to bring photographers of all abilities together in a friendly and informal way to view and discuss photography and techniques. We meet on a regular monthly basis. Usually for the first half of the evening we have a speaker/demo etc. This is followed by an appraisal of members’ images from the latest ‘Photo Challenge’. The ‘Challenge’ is set by Bob at the end of the evening each month; examples from recent ‘Challenges’ can be found elsewhere on the site. Although not strictly necessary for the first couple of visits, APG members are encouraged to join the Social Section of our host club, Solihull Arden Tennis and Squash Club. The club bar is open before each meeting, during the break and at the end of the evening.

Group members are also encouraged to apply for PAGB Awards and enter photographic competitions/exhibitions held by other groups, societies, etc. The Group has had significant successes with PAGB Awards, exhibitions and PAGB competitions.

We meet, usually once a month, at Solihull Arden Club, Sharmans Cross Road,commencing at 8.00pm. See http://www.solihullarden.co.uk/ for details. Please check the Meetings page for more details.

In 2016, Arden Photo Group was placed 2nd in the FIAP World Club Championships, with nearly 200 clubs taking part worldwide. APG also won the PAGB GB Cup in 2016. This nationwide comptition is held for PDI images and is hotly contested by PAGB Camera Clubs.
